"A fabulous excursion into the deep mystery of evil"
- Errol Morris
"Intimate, human, suspenseful, and terrifying, its momentum guided by individual self-delusion and the awful weight and facts of history"
- Ken Burns, Filmmaker
"Lapa has fashioned a fascinating case study: a portrait of the man responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the Second World War who thought of himself in heroic terms."
"The genius of The Decent One, Vanessa Lapa’s disturbing new documentary… is that she in no way tries to differentiate between the man and the monster."
